  • Using its tablets batteries, the Semi can have 1000 kms of range
  • But in the near term, the tables batteries will not be used

In an interview, Tesla founder and CEO, and the world's second-richest man, Elon Musk has stated that its upcoming Semi electric trucks will have a range of up to 1,000 kilometres. Musk has stated that the company's new in-house battery cells and battery pack technology will enable such an astonishing range. 

“Getting a range of let's say 500 km is I think quite easy, trivial to be frank, for a semi-truck and this is assuming a truck that is pulling a load of 40 metric tons. If you want, for long-range trucking, you can take the range up to, we think, easily 800 km, and we see path overtime to 1,000 km range for a heavy-duty truck,” said the South African-American. 

Originally, Musk had stated in 2017, that there would be a 482-kilometre variant and an 804 kilometre variant of the electric truck. To be clear, the 1,000 km range number will only be achieved when the company starts deploying its new battery tech.

Musk also revealed that these mind-boggling ranges for the Semi electric truck have been made possible because of the 300 wh/kg energy density off the battery at a cell level.
